Some 120 MPA managers and other stakeholders from all shores of the Mediterranean are expected to participate at the mid-term conference of the ACT4LITTER project, an Interreg Med Programme project...

The Management Bodies of nine Mediterranean coastal and marine protected areas have joined forces with the INTERREG Med ACT4LITTER to combat marine litter.

ACT4LITTER aims at reviewing the most promising proposed measures to effectively tackle the issue of Marine Litter and select those that could be implemented in MPAs, considering particularly the ecosystem services. The selection of measures will result in the development of MPA-specific action plans for implementation in a future project. Those plans will be complemented by a realistic and operational governance plan at transnational level. MPA stakeholders and key experts on marine litter value chain will be involved through the process to validate the outputs together. The action plans will have a strong focus on preventive measures, using circular economy and sustainable consumption and production approaches.
